Ashley and the HS2
For a foretaste of things to come, click on each of the photographs on the left a couple of times.
These photographs show the progress of the HS2 from Lamb Lane to the Mobberley Road Bridge
There is so much information about the HS2 that it would be impossible to include it on this page. However, the Council will endeavour to include the items and documents that have relevance to Cheshire, and Ashley in particular.
Ashley Parish Council has resolved to oppose the HS2
The information on this page has not changed for some time because, although there are things going on in the background, very little information of substance is generally available.
Information is so lacking that some Ashley residents whose homes are destined for demolition to accomodate the HS2 have not even been afforded the courtesy of being contacted by the HS2, team leaving the affected people very worried and completely in the dark.
